Dreamweaver/Stampendous blog hop

Good morning everyone,

Get ready to be inked, pasted, encrusted, stenciled and stamped!

All of this week the Dreamweaver Stencils’ Dream Team and the Stampendous Design Teams have  been providing some “Dream-pendous” inspiration for you, with multiple opportunities to win some fabulous prizes from both companies.

Today is the final hop of the week where you will be directed from both the Stampendous Impressions‘ blog or the Dream It Up! blog to the players du jour for your oohing and aaahing pleasure. This is your opportunity to see how to mix and mingle your creativity…if you are a stenciler, you will be fascinated at combining stamps with your first love. If you are a stamper, you will be wowed at how stencils can add to your impressions.


Lynell sent over some amazing products from Dreamweavers Stencils that I have never used before – on this card, the pearlescent Embossing Paste and the Rose colored mica f/x irridescent powder and she also sent that gorgeous flourish stencil as well. Thanks so much Lynell. I have a new found love – brass stencils and I’m definately going to try out that paste again. My butterfly is from Stampendous. I love the dark ink line of this stamp – such a bold look and makes it super easy to fussy cut out as well.

Be sure to leave comments as you tour the blogs (with your email addy!) for a chance to win terrific prize packages from both companies. Here’s who has been stamping and dreaming today:

We’ll give away 3 of these prize packages this week. One for all the blog comments from the week combined and two for comments on the blog hop today!!

*Wait … there is more!!*

My card also fits into this month’s Stampendous challenge. This month, in honor of Earth Day, we are challenging ourselves (and you) to make something that uses product(s) that are recycled, re-purposed, or reused in some way. The possibilities are endless! Snazz up a household item and turn it into something beautiful, use something unexpected on your card, or even just use up some scraps you’ve had in your stash forever (that’s recycling, right?!?)

- my Stampendous butterfly was die cut and colored and stickled for another card but I discovered it was too big so it’s been sitting on my craft table waiting for another opportunity to be used. Come join in our challenge.

Don’t forget – we want YOU to play along with is!  You have until Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 11:59 PM EST to add your direct link to our collection at the end of this post (or on the Stampendous blog).  You do not have to use Stampendous products, but we sure love it when you do!  As an extra incentive for playing along, one lucky crafter (drawn at random) will receive this fabulous Mother’s Love Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.  Available in stores now, it will be on the website for purchase soon!

Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address. We hope you have a chance to play along with us (you an enter as many times as you’d like!) this month…Happy Crafting!
